Fighting antinutrients to improve nutrition October 03, By Kaine Korzekwa Is biofortification the best thing since sliced bread? Well, biofortified wheat could certainly make it easier to help some humans get proper nutrition. Biofortification is the process of naturally increasing the nutritional value of a crop. Unlike fortification, which might add a mineral like iron directly to something like bread dough, the goal of biofortification is to have the wheat in the dough naturally contain more iron in the first place. This is done with flours used for bread baking. Graybosch is trying to naturally enhance the minerals of wheat flours to help people around the world get more iron. Breeding lines are the first step in the long process of creating a new type of wheat that farmers can grow.

The GGA is an inclusive and neutral multi-stakeholder platform that brings together public, private, intergovernmental and non-governmental actors that share a common vision of accelerating the deployment of geothermal energy for power generation and other applications. Member countries include geothermal resource-rich countries with established or emerging geothermal markets, along with other countries that wish to support the activities of the Alliance.
Development partners, international and bilateral development organisations, international financial institutions, institutional investors, international organisations, and other development partners involved with geothermal energy. Geothermal industry represented by geothermal business associations at the global, regional and national levels. Member countries and partner institutions are not required to contribute any membership fee.

After a five-minute ride on the orange line, he gets off at Farragut Square and quickly makes his way to work, but not before clearing two security checkpoints and obtaining a badge from the Secret Service. White House intern Shane Hageman’s day often started before dawn, as the first to arrive at the Office of Cabinet Liaison. Hageman was responsible for keeping White House senior officials updated on everything from grants to congressional testimony.
He powers up his computer and begins sorting information and organizing reports for senior officials on Capitol Hill. Hageman makes a run to a nearby McDonald’s for coffee and a bagel, then heads back to face a hour day. It’s turning out to be a typical day in the life of an intern at Pennsylvania Avenue. They each enjoyed different experiences and work environments, but all came away with a newfound sense of responsibility and accomplishment.
An agricultural economics and political science major, Hageman was one of students selected to intern with the Office of Cabinet Liaison at the White House. The office keeps the lines of communication open among government agencies, cabinet secretaries and White House senior officials. Hageman gathered information and wrote reports to update senior officials on everything from grants to congressional testimony.
Other responsibilities included answering phones, keeping agency contact information updated and facilitating meetings for senior officials, agency heads and cabinet secretaries. For Hageman, it was his second internship on the national political scene.
World Bioenergy Day
EUBCE Closing – Friday, 18th May Sustainable bioenergy is essential to achieve climate targets Bioenergy and other low-carbon energy solutions are complementary A stable policy framework and good communication are necessary The 26th European Biomass Conference and Exhibition EUBCE ended on 17th June and confirmed once more its role of world leading platform for biomass science and industry.
The event attracted participants from 65 countries, featured presentations representing the work of more than authors and co-authors and fulfilled over matchmaking requests. This year EUBCE also had a remarkable social media coverage, with over , twitter impressions throughout the week. Sustainable bioenergy is essential to achieve a 2 degrees scenario but it is growing too slow, Adam Brown, IEA, Senior Energy Analyst, said speaking at the closing session.
We have a portfolio of technologies that work and there is no shortage of biomass as feedstock at least for now, so biomass feedstock is not a barrier to progress, he added.

By Anna Simet June 05, The World Bioenergy Association has made available a comprehensive fact sheet that discusses current and potential global biogas supply for a variety of uses or markets, including electricity, heat and transportation fuels. The document is part of a five-part series being released by the WBA, for industry and media use as a verifiable, easily referenced source of information about the renewable energy industry. The WBA emphasizes the great global potential for biogas, pointing to estimates that predict biogas could consist of around 6 percent of the global primary energy supply, or one-third of the current use of fossil gas.
The group is advocating for all countries, developing and developed, to set up a biogas development plan with the target to use at least 30 percent of the biogas potential by These plans should only contain quantitative targets but also an array of measures and a system of monitoring to reach the targets, according to the WBA.
It also details the composition of biogas by component percentage and potential annual yields by animal—for example, one milking cow producing 20 cubic meters of liquid manure per acre yields cubic nanometers of biogas. Putting into perspective how many cows would be needed to power a motor generator of kW electric output, the report indicates that with an electrical efficiency of 35 percent and an annual production of , kWh, , cubic nanometers of biogas would be required, or the equivalent of biogas output from a manure slurry of intensively housed milking cows, 6, pigs or 45 hectares of maize.

Cities account for over 70 percent of global energy use and, 40 to 50 percent of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. In several cities, heating and cooling can account for up to half of local energy consumption. One of the least-cost and most efficient solutions in reducing emissions and primary energy demand is the development of modern climate-resilient and low-carbon district energy in cities.

Bioeconomy Many definitions of the Bioeconomy exist. Defining Bioeconomy is of utmost importance as the definition is the basis on which key sectors are identified, policies designed and priorities acknowledged. Definitions change and evolve; some of them emphasize the technology aspect, others the economic contribution of the bioeconomy or the importance of a sound knowledge-base and the sustainable utilisation of biological resources.
Some others interpret it in more philosophical terms, e. Despite the different visions similarities, such as the emphasis on economic output and a broad, cross-sectoral focus keep constant. The European Commission adopts a process-oriented definition of the Bioeconomy and defines it as: Its sectors and industries have strong innovation potential due to their use of a wide range of sciences, enabling and industrial technologies, along with local and tacit knowledge.
The market at EU level presents an annual turnover of around two trillion euro, and employs around 18 million people. It is already one of the Union’s biggest and most important sectors while its potential for the future is even greater. Bioeconomy has been gaining momentum since September with 50 countries and regions around the world now having a Bioeconomy strategy or related document in place.
Europe’s Bioeconomy Strategy addresses the production of renewable biological resources and their conversion into vital products and bio-energy. It was recently updated to accelerate the deployment of a sustainable European bioeconomy so as to maximise its contribution towards the Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals SDGs , as well as the Paris Agreement. The new strategy aims at strengthening the connection between economy, society and the environment.
